Supplier: Donaldson Filters

To expand the level of occupational health and safety during grinding, drilling, sanding, polishing, finishing or any other general engineering and manufacturing applications, Donaldson Australasia's Downdraft Bench is a self-contained dust collector designed as a workstation to capture contaminants from these tasks.


Across the Defence department, these are being used at Williamtown RAAF base, Australian Submarine Corporation in Adelaide and at various maintenance and machinery workshops.

A rugged construction, the Downdraft Bench has been ergonomically designed for operator comfort while maintaining a powerful 200ft/min minimum downward airflow to capture dust and fumes.

An even air distribution provides effective dust control over the entire work surface and hinged side wing panels open to accommodate longer work pieces.

High filtration efficiency and long filter life are achieved using Donaldson’s Fibra-Web filter cartridges that have nanofiber technology carrying an MERV 14 filtration efficiency rating – a high industry level for a product of this type.

A built-in fluorescent light illuminates the work area for the operator. Powered or remote configurations are available with pulse or static cleaning to fit the application.

Quiet during operation, the Donaldson Downdraft Bench increases productivity and morale by ensuring a cleaner working environment for staff.By providing an even air distribution, effectively the operator gains dust control over the entire work surface.
